house and we burn together. >> it brings to the floor the a argument about budget deficit spending has take on an ideological and nonhuman quality which is to say we forget about what this actually means as you said, nic, to have the firefighters there, to have the police there, to have government in charge of infrastructure building roads and bridges. it makes that moment when the romney campaign seized on the president's comments about you didn't build that, seem so completely small. we are all in this together and government has a role to play and this is about community and it's about businesses being strong and it's about a stronger economy but at the end of the day it is -- government has a role. we are looking at pictures right now of laguardia airport. i am not -- that is i believe a jetway. the airport is flooded. it's worth noting tens of thousands are still stranded across the country, ripple effects when you close down laguardia, newark and jfk. we do know the ap is reporting that stock exchange will be open tomorrow, so as andrew ross sorkin says wall street will begin to
on the impact of sandy on america's discussion about our debt and deficit. the latest hard numbers show over 8 million people are still without electricity across 18 states as we speak. many of those states densely populated in the united states. while this was a freak storm, it's demonstrated that when our outdated power grid is tested, it fails. now, of course, we cannot control such things as the weather, so let's focus on what we can control. how we can improve our infrastructure like our power grid. to me this storm and the massive power failure should be a clarion call to address our antiquated grid to better withstand such uncontrollable events and to do this, once again, it comes down to reining in the fast growing $16 trillion debt the united states is currently saddled with. that total growing by more than $1 trillion over year. that kind of burden on america, there is little wiggle room for unforeseen events such as hurricane sandy. and think about this. we managed to accumulate this debt and run an annual $1 trillion
; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than a witch in a broom factory. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. >>> from sappedy's landfall to sandy's wicked aftermath, here are today's "top lines," now the political storm. >> the good news is we will clean up and we will get through this. >> we have heavy hearts as you know w
provides in order to pay for it. democrats tend to want to tax a little more for that or add to the deficit because of the emergency. >> ifill: chris christie as the governor of new jersey who the president will be traveling with tomorrow looking at hurricane damage, you can only assume that that will be many levels interpretation of that particular meeting. he said he would like to reschedule halloween but it's not possible to reschedule an election, is it? >> it is technically possible to reschedule elections on a state-by-state basis but i don't think we're going to need that. the date on which the election is held actually set by federal law rather than the constitution. congress could change that date. there's actually provision for, if a state doesn't get its vote in on time, basically for the state legislature to make a decision about which electors to send to vote for president. so there are actually ways for that to happen. i just don't think anybody is that the a point right now. >> ifill: if you're in massachusetts or connecticut and your constituents don't have power, they're no
budget deficit, the uncertainty that exists in america over the fiscal cliff and the tax regime and perhaps anti-business policies being practiced by some -- we're not going to go there too aggressively. and so, um, you know, whatever the case may be, the economy's growing, but it's not a feel-good economy because the growth is not rapid enough to reduce i the level of unemployment in the -- reduce the level of unemployment in the economy. giving you some support, very important area of the economy to both the consumer and consumer psychology is housing. and you see really the ingredients for a decent size recovery in housing activity. affordability is near record high, that's the top left-hand slide. home prices to disposable income is running near record low levels, so houses are cheap. in fact, the value of a home is a function of the capitalized cost of renting. rents have gone up much more relative to house price, and so now it's actually with cheaper to buy a home than to rent. but people have not been doing it aggressively yet because one of the most important expenditure
endorse, and why? guest: we endorsed president obama. especially on the debt and the deficit, the president's proposal was more realistic and it would have less of a shock to the system in the country and lead -- in that it would balance spending cuts. we like is more balanced approach to energy. we are in favor of obamacare. the editorial board was in favor of a public option so it did not go far enough for us. on social issues, immigration reform, women's rights, birth control, the editorial board aligns more with the president's policies. that is where we came down. we said that the voters are being asked by both candidates to take a leap of faith. given what we know about the previous four years, we decided that it was going to be an easier but to go with the president for four more. host: how many times have you seen president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we ha
